    Yeah here is my set up, And it's having a hard time on min settings:

    Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP1
    Asus M2n-SLIDeluxe
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.15 GHz
    6 Gb ram
    MSI GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 256-bit GDDR3

    So yeah, Not only that, but I've been having crashes like you wouldn't believe. I just updated all my drivers and they are all good. Any hits or suggestions you could throw my way?

    sounds like your system is too powerful but maybe other problems,have you gone into sys config and disable unnecessary startup items,also you can try this but i dont know if it will help or not,start- control panel- system and maintanance- performance and information tools- adjust visual affects- choose for performance try that if not try for backround services,if system is still too strong try running at 2gig ram

    Cant say I have ever heard of a system being too powerful, and certainly not as far as Crysis is concerned as its a very demanding game.

    If you are using the most up to date GeForce drivers try rolling back a few versions too see if it makes any difference, go one version at a time and test it. It not uncommon for the latest versions of any drivers to have problems, they cant possibly fully test them on all possible setup combinations.

    Have you checked for heat issues? Try running Speedfan or something similar to monitor CPU, Harddrive, System, GPU temperatures etc and see how they go when idle and under load.

    for sure, give speedfan a go, it sounds a LOT like overheating, APPARENTLY (i dont believe it) these no system that can play crysis on max settings at 100fps (or something like that) ive seen systems with core 2 extremes and quad SLi all that stuff run crysis smoothly, there's no such thing as a system that's TOO good (as far as im concerned) the only thing i would say is over kill is the 6Gb RAM but that should be fine, try letting it run on 4 though just to see if it changes. The graphics card is certainly not too good for crysis many people (and by many im talking a few) run crysis on 8800s in SLi. Yeah give the drivers a go but make sure you download from the manufacturer's site

    go here: http://www.ea.com/crysis/home.jsp
    click on the "can you run it" button.
    see if your computer passes.

    Also, how many watts is your power supply?? your computer looks powerful so your supply may not be able to keep up with the demand for power.

    If it does pass and your power supply is ok, i would have to agree with the overheating.
